#5 of 15 in Parks in Orlando
Home to several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, Harry P. Leu Gardens also lays claim to almost 20.3 hectares (50 acres) of warm-weather gardens. You can visit the gardens and wander among the lush greenery, discovering azaleas, citrus trees, hibiscus, vegetables, and more spread out over a multitude of different exhibits and themed areas. Keep an eye out for some of the centuries-old oak trees on the grounds. Stop by the on-site museum in the former house of the garden's founders, the Leus, and join a guided tour. You'll find a showcase of the life and times of the Leus dating from around the turn of the 20th century. Be sure to check the gardens' schedule for information on special events, showings, and activities. Plan to visit Harry P.

  • Absolutely beautiful gardens located just minutes from downtown Orlando. They have several different areas including a natural Florida garden, herb garden, butterfly garden, vegetable garden, and several walking trails that go further out into the edges of the garden and are more rustic. It's a great place to relax and you can grab a bite in the cafe. One of my favorite spots!
  • Leu Gardens is great place to go and just roam the gardens for relaxation or to get ideas for your own yard..... its inexpensive and they 'usually' keep the grounds immaculate however the most recent hurricane has seemed to put them behind the 8ball a tad... Bring your camera and maybe even a picnic (if you're into that stuff).
  • Due to hurricane, many trees were down and still being cut down. Some areas were closed. But a great place to visit and spend some quality time. Beautiful palms. Butterfly garden, rose garden. Go, enjoy
  • It is a wonderful botanical garden maintained by some of the finest, most knowledgeable experts anywhere. There is a diversity of plant species rarely found, and a plethora of adventures to be had amongst them. A great time for the whole family, and all nature lovers.
  • Our first visit (11/14/17) since hurricane Irma. Sad to see the damage. The repairs are in progress. Lots of work remains. Over 200 huge trees were fallen. Hence, many of the walkways are roped-off for safety and servicing. The estate home remains closed until the repairs are made. On the positive side, there are many walkways still open and the boardwalk/deck is open as well. Still beautiful ground in spite of nature's wrath.
